I have few neighbors who are Indians,usually I distribute sweets and murukku during Diwali. Though they conduct potlucks I don't attend fearing politics unwanted gossips etc. We don't talk or hangout on regular basis but due to my family tradition of giving sweets I did., mostly hi-bye relationship. Rest of the families go for day trips, picnic, birthdays and potlucks. Should I continue the tradition for sake? My dh don't do too much work for Diwali. But it's been one long tradition in my family I don't want to give up. Festivities are all about positivity and sharing happiness.
